New Orleans 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyer
Representing the Victims of Tractor-Trailer Accidents
The results of an 18-wheeler accident can be devastating. Due to the sheer size difference between a large tractor-trailer and a small car, the driver and passengers of the car often suffer catastrophic injuries. A great number of accidents result in fatal injuries.
If you or your loved ones are suffering from the result of an accident involving a large truck, we can help to change your financial situation and help get you the medical treatment you need.
Here are the benefits of working with our firm:
- Free case review – we can visit you if you are unable to come to our office
- There is no fee until we win the case for you either through a settlement or trial
- We can often help you cover medical expenses while we are litigating
Some of the most serious accidents on the road involve crashes with semi-trucks. People injured by tractor trailers often face permanent injuries. A large number of these accidents cause fatal injuries (wrongful death). Some of the more common causes of truck accident include:
- Driver fatigue
- Driver inattention
- Improper loading
- Failure to maintain truck
- Failure to drive safely in dangerous weather conditions
Trucking companies are quick to deny negligence after an accident, sending investigators to the scene of the accident to gather evidence to support their case. It is important for the victim of a trucking accident to take similar action and call a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident. Our law firm can immediately start investigating the cause of your accident and gathering evidence to support your case.
